My son 4 yr old he had slight stammering some times otherwise he talk normally when some fears in his mind he stammering continueously give me suggestion for treatment.

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
Support him, talk to him with compassion. Assure him that when you are there to help him, nothing will hurt him & everything will be okay. You can help him to express his fear, whenever he feels, there by reducing it's impact. If you take care of his emotions and support, assure him, stammering will disappear.

Gas forms in every individual so in kids too. Don't give any medicine for normal happenings in life. Since gas formation is no disease so no medicine and its dose.

Soaps for babies have to be mild. Don't use antiseptic/ lightening soaps. Use glycerin based soaps and apply moisturizer twice a day on damp skin. Any oil is good for light gentle massage before bathing the child. For scalp avoid coconut oil in first year.
